Tax Relief for Kentucky Residents Affected by Tornadoes

Between December 10-11, 2021, severe tornadoes caused extensive damage in parts of Western Kentucky and surrounding areas. The IRS has extended the tax-filing deadline for 2021 to May 16, 2022 for those affected by this natural disaster. To read the full press release, please click here. 

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear has announced that the Kentucky Department of Revenue (DOR) will honor the IRS special tax relief for taxpayers areas designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as qualifying for individual assistance. For a full listing of counties qualifying for this relief, please click here.

Under the provisions of KRS 131.081(11), Kentucky honors federal extensions related to disaster relief for filing of income tax returns, including payment of tax due. This extension to file and pay taxes does not apply to sales tax and other type of taxes. However, taxpayers with disaster-related delays who are seeking filing extensions or have been assessed penalties for taxes other than income may contact DOR to request an extension or a waiver of penalties.
